jorge de la cruz: canisters I

‘canisters I’ by jorge de la cruz all images are courtesy of jorge de la cruz wooden canisters with archetypal shapes

spanish designer jorge de la cruz has developed a series of wooden containers based on an archetypal shape where the leading protagonist is its brushed finished material. entitled ‘canisters I’, the pieces are constructed from swedish pine and are hand-finished with a meta wire comb. a matte lacquer is applied to protect the surface giving it a smooth final surface, accentuating the grain. the project stems from ‘a wooden stool’ which also maximizes the expression of the element to tell the history of its fabrication. see designboom’s original article of ‘a wooden stool’ here.
